As I have said on numerous occasions, part of the reason that I train so hard is so I can run with Wallen half a dozen times a year. Saturday morning, he and I covered 6.6 miles. The splits were 8:46, 8:45, 8:36, 8:50, 8:43 and 8:46. We walked about 0.25 mile in the middle and stopped briefly to stretch. Given how much trouble I have had with my hip and knee over the last year, I felt pretty good about the times. If I hadn't worked out on Thursday and Friday, I would probably could have carried 10 to 15 second more per mile.
With it raining hard on Sunday morning, Sharon took Wallen and I to the Laguna Racquet Club for a spin class. Afterwards, we got cleaned up and went to the Riverside Clubhouse for brunch.
Wallen headed back to the Pacific Northwest in the afternoon. It was great to have an opportunity to spend a couple of days with him!
